We’re back from holidays and are working on all sorts of exciting Counterweave ideas. Autumn and winter workshops will be uploaded to the website soon, and there will be all sorts of lovely handmade items going into the Counterweave Etsy shop over the next couple of weeks.
Keep an eye out for new artworks and a new line of art and craft supplies, including vintage Japanese kimono fabric packs, vintage laces and trims and handspun yarns. And don’t forget there’s free shipping on all items in the Counterweave Etsy shop.
This week’s update features:
- three types of kami ito paper yarn or thread, handspun by Felicity Griffin Clark, using Japanese washi paper. Kami ito is very strong and is traditionally used in Japanese shifu weaving. It can also be knitted and crocheted and used in mixed media work. (Click on the photos for more details and pics!)
